Went at around 5pm on a Monday, so pretty quiet. Decoration isnít fantastic but itís interesting to see all the pump clips on the wall. You donít get gravity cask beers in many pubs these days - 10 here. I assume that there is a good turnaround too. I didnít try the food, but at £7 for main meals, itís reasonable for London. Likewise with the beer - £3.50 a pint for CAMRA members is cheap for London. Probably not worth a special journey for a beer tourist, though it is very close to Euston Tap.

As others have commented, you donít come here to view outstanding pub interior. And, carpets in a pub? Where else in the civilized world?? But you will meet friendly staff and a lively clientele in this neighborhood pub. Not the exclusive selection as at Euston Tap but a decent selection of British craft beer.

Visited 2 times during my London week, this place feels and looks a bit run down, could need an work over, still there is some qualities here, lots of rotating cask beers, always something new, at least for a tourist like me, and the staff are very helpful and service minded. Worth a visit when you are in the area.

Old and rather run down pub close to Euston Station. Good selection of casks mostly from smaller locals, some macro lagers aswell, . Very busy and packed at our visit. Beers in good condition, samplers offered before ordering. Good service and good prices

Just round the corner from Euston Station and close to numerous underground lines, the Bree Louise has long been a haven for real ale drinkers. Sadly this pub is under threat and is due to be demolished sometime around 2017 due to the expansion of Euston Station to become the terminus of the new High Speed Rail Link to Birmingham. This will be a real shame as the Bree Louise is always busy providing what is basically a permanent Beer festival with a large number of cask ales both on draught and gravity. In addition they offer both a good variety of quality ciders and tasty, inexpensive, if rather basic pub grub. The staff are usually helpful and often a real delight. I do hope that the Bree Louise will be able to relocate, if not it will be a real loss to Londons discerning beer drinkers. So try it while you can

I have mixed feelings about this placed: On the one hand itís really run down, but on the other there was a friendly atmosphere when I visited. The staff wasnít too impressive as they didnít bother updating the board and they didnít put new casks on to replace the ones that had run dry. The selection was good though in particular as far as ciders go. The food was okay as well.

We visited here on Thursday 28th March, after weíd been to the Euston Tap and Diwana (curry house). It had been a number of years since Iíd last been to the Bree Louise, to be honest I wasnít overly struck on it then and I was even less impressed with it now. On the plus side it is very close to Euston in a nice little neighbourhood and it has a v.large and forever changing selection of beers, it is also v.well frequented and is clearly a popular place. On the negative side it is the business that is also its achillies heel. We found it v.difficult to get to the bar, there is a pervading aroma of stale beer, carpets in pubs are not a great idea. My beer was far too warm, I was also not overly impressed with the staff who seemed somewhat reluctant to halt their conversation to serve me (and others) Loz had a Windsor & Eton Conqueror, I had the 440 collaboration ale by the same brewery, to be fair Loz gad a v.good beer. I am not sure that I would rush back here again when there are better pubs in the vicinity, but if it upped its game, got rid of the carpets kept beer a little better, who knows, it could be an absolute corker.

Decent selection, real scruffy boozer decor. Good place, but prefer Euston Tap just around corner.

Back Street boozer on Cobourg St 3 minutes walk from Euston. Dingey and scruffy outdated 70ís interior. It hasnít changed from the previous incarnation, The Jolly Gardeners, which I occasionally popped into in the mid 90ís. Beer range looks promising but the quality often lets it down, particularly from the stillage. Having been let down on these before I once decided on a pint that wasnít necessarily first choice but was cask. I ordered it and they proceeded to head to the stillage and draw it off!!! Service is OK - 50p discount for CAMRA. Not a place I tend to bother with anymore with the Euston Tap around the corner and even more convenient for Euston, in fact I think just the one visit in 2012 and not at all missed !
